to be the year that wall street lurns to love elizabeth warren. since she's been appointed to the senate banking committee says they think they can work with elizabeth warren. part of the reason is she's going to sit all the way down here as one of the least senior members of the senate banking committee and also because they say they think that warren is going to want to take a much broader approach as a united states senator than just focusing on wall street or consumer issues. immigration reform is coming here to capitol hill and the battle is going to be what's in the final bill, and particularly what's the path to citizenship forexisting undocumented workers here and the penalties for employers who have hired them. all of wall street will be watching a new relationship between key players at the house financial services committee. gone is mr. backer. we're going to have jed hensarling here. over here with barney frank used to sit as a top democrat, instead we're going to have maxine waters. they expect to see maxine waters and jeb hensarling trying to find om some area of agreement that the
